Lenten Meditation from Mary Ruth Crook, originally penned in 1993.
God of all our seasons,
It is the time of beginning again,
the time of picking up and putting away,
the time of setting things straight.
We thank you for the orderliness of creation,
the security of the seasons,
the knowing that you have made us.
Teach us how to live in harmony with Earth,
how to care for all its creatures,
how to love its myriad children.
Praise we sing with hearts uplifted,
praise we sing in fullness of joy,
praise we sing in trembling and awe.
We dedicate this Lenten season to thee —
day by day.
